U.S. Constitution warning label

Does the United States Constitution need a warning label? This story is a few years old, but I just came across it. Here’s what one publisher included on the title and copyright page for its version of the Constitution:

United States Constitution warning label

“This book is a product of its time and does not reflect the same values as it would if it were written today. Parents might wish to discuss with their children how views on race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, and interpersonal relations have changed since this book was written before allowing them to read this classic work.”

Is there any validity to this warning?
